THQ dates Homefront

Posted on November 11, 2010

Futuristic dystopian first-person shooter confirmed for March 8 stateside release; hitting Australia on March 10, Europe March 11.

THQ has been undergoing some significant internal transformations of late. One of the aims of these changes was to ensure more timely and reliable releases to calm investor’s nerves, and the company seems to be having a fair amount of success in that regard. Speaking over a year ago THQ confirmed that Homefront, its upcoming near-future first-person shooter, would be out by the end of its 2011 fiscal year as one of its marquee releases, and today the publisher confirmed it would be arriving at the start of March–the last month in THQ’s fiscal 2011.

Homefront will hit stores in North America on March 8, according to a tweet from the game’s official account, and the US release will be swiftly followed by the game arriving in Australian shops on March 10 before finally arriving in Europe on March 11. The game is a story-driven shooter that is set after North Korea overruns the continental United States. The single-player component pits the player as a member of the American resistance fighting the Korean People’s Army in an attempt to regain control of the ruined nation, while the multiplayer is set earlier, letting players engage in military scenarios from the invasion itself.

Homefront is being developed by Kaos studios, whose only previous full title was Frontlines: Fuel of War. The studio was formed in 2006 from the remnants of Trauma Studios, which was best known for Battlefield 1942 mod Desert Combat and helped DICE in the development of Battlefield 2 before being liquidated.

For more on Homefront, check out the recent GameSpot previews of both the single-player story and the multiplayer component. It will be released on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and will be rated 18+ by PEGI in Europe. It has not yet been rated by the ESRB.
